LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Church leaders ought to re-examine God’s true identity

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Church leaders ought to re-examine God’s true identity

This picture represents the Trinity – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Dear Editor: The scriptures are pretty simple on this matter. They teach that there is ONE true God. For example, at John 17:3 Jesus said: “…that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” ONLY means ONE.

Therefore, Jesus was saying that God is ONE. Then by using the word AND, Jesus was clearly showing that he was a separate person from his Father, hence, he (Jesus) was NOT the only true God.

Note at John 17:1 that Jesus “lifted up his eyes to heaven and said, Father, the hour is come…” So Jesus, on earth, was praying to the Father in heaven. To whom was Jesus praying – himself? Could Jesus have been the Father then? Also, John 20:17 makes it clear that Jesus has a God. There Jesus said to Mary: “I ascend unto my Father … and to my God …” Why would Jesus have a God if he himself was God? Jesus himself NEVER claimed to be God, but said that he was “SON of God.” – John 10:36.

The scriptures consistently teach that Jesus is God’s SON, NOT God; Luke 1:32; John 3:16; Romans 1:3 etc. Consistently too, the Scriptures use the expression, “God the Father” or “God our Father” such as at Romans 1:7; 1 Corinthians 1:3; 2 Corinthians 1:2, 3; Galatians 1:1, 3; Ephesians 1:2; Philippians 1:2; Colossians 1:2; 1 Thessalonians 1:1; 2 Thessalonians 1:2; 1 Timothy 1:2; 2 Timothy 1:2 etc.

However, never once is the expression, “God the Son” used in the Scriptures. Rather, we read the expression, “Son of God.” Eg: at John 20:31; Acts 9:20; Romans 1:4; 2 Corinthians 1:19; 1 John 4:15 and 5:5, 10; Revelation 2:18 etc. The expression, “Son of God” is completely different in meaning from “God the Son.”

Yes, God and His Son are one in unity, but not one in being the same person; John 10:30.

A number of church leaders (pastors, reverends, pointers etc) are fully aware that Jesus is not God but God’s Son, but they appear to be too fearful to come forward and make the truth of God’s identity known, perhaps fearing that they will lose their positions. I’ve personally spoken with a religious leader who confessed that the Trinity is a man-made doctrine, as well as with others, who said that they know that Jesus is not God.

Christ said that the truth shall set a person free; John 8:32. I am therefore humbly appealing to church leaders to come together and reexamine the matter of God’s identity with an open mind.

Tell the people the truth; that God alone is God, the Father, the Almighty, Most High (Exodus 6:3; Psalm 83:18) and that Jesus is the Son of God. Make yourselves free by making the truth known.

A matter of serious concern.

Simeon James.

  1. Please people get a life.
    Does it matter any more. What would Muslims, Jews, Hindus etc. think or any other "religion" with their own version of the make believe entity.
    This is the 21st century, wars are being fought all over the world as a result of religious differences.

  2. God's true identity....Yahuah and His Son Yahusha......Yahuah's true path, the ancient one which is His calendar. For one the whole world has been deceived into following Pope Gregory's calendar. The calendar of the Beast. Days that are named, months that are named and a year that starts in the middle of winter. None of these were commanded by Yahuah. We have to seek the Creator's Calendar and obey His commands. Remember He said 'few will find Him'. After being deceived for so long many will defend and even use scripture to justify their deceit. The calendar the world uses today is what the Beast uses to gain adoration from the world. Forsake the calendar of Rome!

    • Yahuah's days are numbered. 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc etc. The months also are numbered. And on the 7th day He rested. Yahusha took the place of a sacrificed lamb. The year starts in what many call April which is the month of Abib. Get back to the true scriptures of Yahuah and forsake the calendar of Rome with all it's pagan days and traditions.

    • He is the God of His children only, not the world. We are all God's creation but not all of us are His children. Only those who obey Him and does His will are His children.

  6. Church leaders need to re-examine God's idenity. I am afraid to write that Jesus's in the gospel has no touch this writer's heart to reveal the one true god to him. Some of us interpret the bible on our own. It is Jesus in his Gospel who reveals the Father to us. The Son was with the Father from the beginning of time together with the Holy Spirit. Let Jesus, who is THE ONLY SON OF GOD who is the only one who has come down from heaven. And remember when Jesus said I am in my Father and My Father is in me.If you have seen me you have seen the Father. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of love which unites them. THAT IS WHY GOD IS LOVE. AMEN.

  7. I don't want a war with 'bible-humpers' this morning, but I need to say that God is Energy, the spark of life in every being, the breath of life. I see God in everything but the Devil is on the flip-side, because nothing can exist without the seed of it's opposite. Evil is the absence of Good, but most of us prefer it because it's easier, and I have seen a good man turn deadly in a split second.
    Recognizing the duality of man is one of the reasons that we are here on this plane of existence. We are Gods...'I Am That I Am.'
